Welcome to Llungen Lures!

In 2005, professional musky guide, Chad Cain purchased Llungen Lures from his good friend Keith Eldrup.

After owning and operating the company for nearly 8 years Chad was looking to spend some more quality time with his wife Stephanie and his daughters Riley and Jordan. During the summer of 2013, he decided to hand off the business to a few good friends: Chris Piha, his wife Cari, and Matt Gunkel. While Chad is still actively involved in the company and product development he is now able to spend more time with the family and less time spinning bucktails.

Chris and Matt spent three years dissecting one of Illinois top musky producers, Lake Kinkaid. Both Chris and Matt were attending Southern Illinois University at the time and became local legends winning back to back Illinois Musky Tournament trail victories on their home waters and taking home the IMTT State Championship in 2010.

Chris and Cari are both actively serving in the United States Air Force. Cari, a C-17 Pilot, has flown countless combat missions in Afghanistan. Chris, an Aircraft Maintenance Officer oversees hundreds of Airmen who keep the aircraft where they belong, in the air! Both are passionate about serving their country and in their off duty time love to spend time on the water together.

Matt grew up and went to college in the Chicago area. Chasing his passion of science and fishing, he moved to Carbondale for graduate school and fell in love with the area. After graduate school, Matt found a job with the Illinois Department of Public Health as a Clinical Laboratory Scientist. In addition to fishing in his spare time, Matt enjoys writing and traveling.

The Llungen company and family continues to grow and surround itself with partners that share the same passion for fishing and the love of the outdoors.
